Here is this week’s (March 27-April 2, 2010) digital camera review roundup:
- The Canon PowerShot SX210 IS [Specs] receives high praises this week from a number of reviewers: TrustedReviews finds that it “offers more genuinely useful features than almost anything else in its class,” PhotographyBLOG says it is “for anyone looking for an undemanding travel camera that almost does it all” and TechRadar rates it as “one of the best compact cameras of the year so far… It’s superb.“
- Touchscreen seems to be coming of age and actually getting usable on digicams without the early frustration factor: Camera Labs loved the touch-screen on the Canon PowerShot SD3500 IS / IXUS 210 [Specs] [not to be confused with the SX210 IS above] and finds that it “works so well that after a short time using it you find yourself wondering why we ever bothered with little buttons.“
- A trip to China is something you surely want to record in pictures and video. Which camera to bring? Ask DigitalCameraReview who liked the Nikon Coolpix P100 [Specs] so much they are taking this 26x ultra wide-angle optical zoom to their 11-day China Trip — and rethinking the need to upgrade to a DSLR.
- But wait! Want something a bit more compact with a long zoom and GPS to boot? The compact Sony DSC-HX5V [QuickPrice Check] with 10x ultra wide-angle optical zoom and GPS scored as a “technological tour-de-force loaded with more features than anything else on the market” in the review by TrustedReviews.
- PhotographyBLOG found the waterproof, shockproof and freezeproof Olympus TOUGH 3000 [Specs] to be pretty versatile as a family snapshooter but with average image quality.
- TrustedReviews finds that the Canon PowerShot A490 [Specs] “overall build quality, performance and image quality don’t really compare to Canon’s more expensive models” and recommends looking at a more expensive model. We invite you to check our Reviews Matrix for a second opinion.
- DigitalCameraReview loved the Canon A3100 IS as “an almost ideal first digital camera and an excellent choice for the primary family camera.“
- So many good things have already been said about the Canon EOS Rebel T2i / 550D [Specs] and DPReview confirms that it “is the best camera of its class that we’ve ever seen, and one of those rare cameras that won’t look out of date in a couple of years’ time.“
- Finally, is it worth upgrading to the Nikon D3s [Specs]? Thom Hogan says, Yes, because simply, “It’s better” and now you can “Shoot at any ISO.”
